I forgot my camera... Very annoyed. This was such a great temple. My thai wife took a moment to make an offering. Worth a look.

We have visited this temple. It seems that the Buddha is made of gold .. about 5000kg.(5tons). It is a tourist attraction. We could see many people sit there and pray.

Good to see, but the ground was not very clean, the security was not really good. We felt unsafe when visiting here. The management board should improve the present problens for the next tourists...

Its a nice place to go. Big Buddha is placed on a hill where you can have a view of Pattaya. If you have limited time in Pattaya i believe is more worthy to visit Sanctuary of Truth and the floating market.

This is what Thailand is all about. It's not called ''land of smiles'' for no reason. Yes it has loads of night life go-go bars etc but this tells you the true side of Thailand...........REX.........

This is a nice place to visit to pray and to look at the skyline. There is no entry fee as a Temple (where they pray). Also no shorts and skirts else wrap arounds are available.
